Future scenario

Complete your life without regrets, discomforts, or apologies

Telemedicine and remote care have reached new heights with the emergence of biosensors and telerobotics. We receive the optimized care that we need, and highly developed medical technologies protect us against disease. Everyone in the world lives a longer, healthier, more enjoyable life, and as a result, is able to determine and fully understand the meaning of an ideal death. When we are ready to do so, we decide the setting, time, and other circumstances of our last days without being bound by societal values or other restrictions.

Until now
A happy, positive end to life is regulated by society
In the future
Each individual is free to end a long, healthy life without expectations or obligations

Technological and societal challenges

  • The world must develop technologies and design systems that make remote, highly customized treatment possible through high-precision sensing and telerobotics. Medical technology and system design that promote measures against non-disease will also be required.

Expected role of universities

  • Universities will provide opportunities for the public to think deeply about the meaning of life and death, and will offer best practices for each individual to end their journey in the way they see fit.
